If you follow my IG stories, you know our Easy Gluten-Free Biscuits have become a regular in our house the last few months. In fact, I think we’ve made them more in the last 8 weeks than we have in the prior 8 months!

And we’ve been loving them each and every time!

But we decided to amp them up a bit with some cheddar cheese and scallions and oh my goodness, so good!

Still pantry staple ingredients, still 5 minutes to prep and 20 minutes to bake!

Still the most amazing soft & fluffy texture, especially when warm and straight from the oven!

But… completely different flavor!  So much savory goodness!

And I see lots of opportunity to customize the flavor with your favorite cheese, chives instead of scallions, bacon if you eat meat…

Before we get into how to make them, I have to share that the original recipe is from my grandmother.

In case you haven’t made the Easy Gluten-Free Biscuit, she called them baking powder biscuits (for the obvious reason, they require a lot of baking powder!) and she made them whenever she needed something quick!

I love the original hand-written recipe card she gave me long ago.

She was correct, “These are so fast to make and one of the best!”

The basic biscuit is only 7 ingredients — all pantry staples and is SOOOOO quick to make. Literally 5 mintues!

This savory version is the original 7 ingredients, plus 2 more for savory flavor… and just as quick!

All you need is all purpose flour (we used GF Jules – affiliate link), baking powder, salt, a little sugar, milk, 1 egg, a touch of butter, cheddar cheese and scallions.

You may note that my Grandmother did not use egg but when we started making these gluten-free we felt the egg was necessary to get the soft and fluffy texture.

Back to the biscuits…

They come together quickly!

You literally throw all the basic biscuit ingredients in one bowl and mix it up until well combined. Then add in the cheese and scallions and mix till just combined.

Then drop the batter into 6 biscuits on a baking sheet and bake!

Just look at this texture!

And the melty cheese and scallions!

Best served warm, the are so flavorful and delish!

The perfect add to any meal!

And while I’ve only made them with cheddar and scallions, I think there’s a lot of opportunity to customize… you can swap out the cheddar for any cheese, though I happen to like the flavor of a strong cheddar.  You could try chives instead of scallions. You could even try bacon in place of scallions if you eat meat.

Any way, they are easy, savory and delish!

We amped up our Easy Gluten-Free Biscuit with some savory goodness! Still pantry ingredients, still just 5 minutes to prep, 20 minutes to bake and still a warm, bready biscuit.. but now with an amazing savory flavor! We added cheddar cheese and scallions but lots of opportunity to customize. See ideas below. Best served warm.

Basic Biscuit
  • 2 cups gluten-free all purpose flour (we used GF Jules- affiliate link)

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven 400 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  5. Bake 20 minutes or until cake tester comes out clean. If at 20 minutes, tops are crisp but you want to cook the center an extra few minutes, gently cover with foil and bake additional 5 minutes.

  1. I have been making the plain biscuits for some time now, and this was a duh moment for me when I saw this posted. Why have I never thought to add cheese until now. Such a game changer! We love them.

  2. Made these tonight- I’m dairy free so I subbed almond milk for the regular milk and So Delicious brand cheddar jack for the cheese. They didn’t really brown up like the ones pictured but that doesn’t matter because they tasted so good! Highly recommend trying the recipe with the substitutes if you need to!
